Back in May, Milwaukee Record and Busch Light joined forces to host an unconventional event at Promises (538 W. National Ave.) based around the almighty beer sleeve. “The Great Milwaukee Can Koozie Swap” brought dozens of folks—including a few people from out of state!—and their can koozie collections to the Walker’s Point bar/venue for an afternoon of koozie buying, selling, trading, and celebrating. It was a great time! Since it went so well, we figured we’d bring it back this fall…except with an extra element incorporated this time around.

Join us at Promises on Saturday, November 4 for “The Great Milwaukee Can Koozie Swap & Bar Chip Bonanza” from 1-5 p.m. Like last time, people who are 21 and older are invited to bring their koozie collections to Promises to try to make some deals. We’ll have some tables set up to serve as makeshift marketplaces where people can make some koozie-related transactions.

The first 100 people through the doors will also get a free can koozie that features the logos of Busch Light and Milwaukee Record on it. This koozie is a hot commodity! Show it to a Promises bartender ANY TIME BETWEEN NOVEMBER 4 AND DECEMBER 31 and get $1 off cans of Busch Light. That’s $2 cans of Busch Light for almost two months, people!

But there’s more! This time around, we’ve expanded the event to include a “Bar Chip Bonanza” element. Give us a drink chip—from ANY bar, restaurant, or brewery…even places that are no longer open—and we’ll let you spin our newly-acquired prize wheel for a chance to win prizes like Busch Light swag, free drinks, Milwaukee Record merch, your choice of treasures from “The Prize Pile,” and more. Don’t have any bar chips to trade? Spins can also be purchased for $2 apiece.

There’s NO COVER for this event. Just bring your koozies, your drink chips you don’t plan to use, and some beer money to Promises on Saturday, November 4 and let’s make some deals!
